    help a new guy out

    remember to always leave the front PTO clutch lever in the far forward position most of the time, only pulled back to start your beast, those wear buttons on the front of it wear out far too fast if you leave it in the disengaged position. I used to pop the belt off the mower and loop it , tied...

    Welcome Emmett, you will learn that..... you take a beer and look at the lawn,..... a while,......... decide where the middle is and then mow a few strips there first, then starting from the outside, mow clockwise round and round blowing all the choff towards that first mowed portion...

    Second Spindle This Year

    No offense Mike, but is there a way to rotate images that are orientated to give viewers a sore neck? I can see that at the point of submission there is indeed one, but a few of us dont seem to notice that 'rotate image' button..... and I would like to look at that image a while... myself (but...

    Back in the game!

    Welcome again to you and I like the idea of a large barn, i built a 6 car dungeon with the same expectation. Thanks for the "Hard to machine" suggestion, its been a mental challenge for several months already, and remains unresolved, at least in my simple mind. I may make a Plaster of Paris...

    Back in the game!

    Welcome John (Jay) and wh cc Guy, this is off topic I know, but the thinking experience of two tool and die makers would probably answer this engineers puzzle in a moment. Can I invite you both (and anyone else who cares to venture an opinion) to comment. Ps I have two CC originals and a...

    Darn yellow virus, thank you bob,, 128 born 1973

    If I knew how to start a new thread I would so maybe someone who knows can move this and call it something like: " Things we have told our "Managers" why we needed a new bit of yellow (Darn Yellow Fever), number 9 or 10 or whatever...." but this sort of fits here too borrowing one from another...

    Unknown Cub Cadet With Problems

    I agree with Marty's diagnosis of potential model number, First with a flashlight at a shallow angle shine on the raised block in your third picture and later to the left of the position Marty is pointing his pen to and if there are any indentations gently sand that block. all the early CC's...

    Unknown Cub Cadet With Problems

    The ID trick will probably be in the serial number of the TRACTOR, not the motor. (That's a nice set of pictures, but the serial number of the motor which you show is not the the clue to answering your question just yet) So to find this you need a scotch-bright or steel wool or really fine emery...

    Deck and Mule Drive Parts

    I found I was getting a differential cut between mower blades, I removed the mower, flipped it over and turned the blades till the cutting edges were directly adjacent to each other (this might require releasing tension etc), and if there is a height difference then release the hub bolts and...

    New project 105

    I had much that problem some years ago. Found an original 100, short of an engine but with a gearbox and creeper drive, as a garden ornament in a flower bed. It followed me home. Creeper drive seized, made a set of gears fit and then started the hunt for an motor. Found a Lincoln welder with a...

    Refurbishing my 108

    Two of mine on display at a local fund raising car show for a police retirement facility in January 2020 (The trident was all hand built, beaten and rolled to get the body built) So I positioned mine close by and got lots of admiring looks and questions. made up a brochure with specs and...

    Refurbishing my 108

    Morning all old and young Cubbers again, Thanks for the prompt responses, and RayF your two diagrams illustrate the issue exactly. Starting with the original 100 design, part 8 fits onto part 6 with a rolled pin and 60 years later ... sloppy Joe. I have for years toyed with cutting splines...
